The J Dress

So it’s (past) mid November and I am sooo behind in terms of sewing, blogging and generally being organised. I’ve decided to blog my J Dress without photos of it being worn, mainly because the wintry weather (it snowed – or at least sleeted – yesterday) means I won’t be wearing this summery make again for quite some time. 

The J Dress is Le Jardin dress. I purchased the fabric from Holm Sewn at Easter, and just loved the print and vibrant colours. The pattern was yet another Cynthia Rowley 1873, with a self-lined bodice. The only difference with this pattern was the silky fabric meant I tried a rolled hem – with varying success in different sections. Alas, no close up photos of this. I wore this dress on the last day of term before the summer holidays, to go out for a meal with my mum and dad, but I didn’t take photos as I was too tired and ready for the hols. 

I’ve included this last photo because, although this is the dress pre-zip insertion, which is why it looks oversized and shapeless, at least you can get a better look at the fabric. 

Now I’m off to trawl through my photos to try and work out which one my K Dress was…

  4. You could wear this with a cardigan and thick wool tights in the Winter, couldn’t you? I would! Seems a shame to wait until next Summer…..

#football #sport #sports #court #outdoors #optoutside #sky #clouds #bluesky #nightfall #twilight #bluehour #violet The landscape is changing and whilst the trees are still vibrant, many of the fields have been harvested and are looking drab. Looking at Wilfie's expression however, the surroundings don't detract from his enjoyment of the 10 mile run he just accompanied me on. He kept up perfectly and is now snoozing beside me. He's a good dog. •
